Well, I finally made a decision on what stalking rifle to buy and was just waiting for the right (cheap) rifle to come up for sale. It happened yesterday, I looked on the internet and a battered Browning Medallion in 7mm08 with S&B 6x42 with swing off mounts came up for £450! So I put my trousers on(luckily) and drove to the shop to have a look and put a deposit on it(pending FAC return). I dont like the shiny varnish at all and it's full of knocks and scratches but for the money I didn't think I could go too wrong, providing it shoots straight but I suppose that's the risk you take with a used rifle.
Needless to say I'm a bit excited, but have I picked the right caliber
